According to a recent report by the Policy Research Group (POREG), terrorism in Pakistan is a form of self-harm. Pakistan has been cultivating terrorists in its backyard as part of its security and foreign policy. The country must now pay for this unfortunate event.
The problem, according to POREG, is that significant powers in Pakistan have made terrorism a ticking time bomb, initially placating the terrorists in the name of protecting Islam, and then launching a counterattack against them.
The challenge facing the country’s leadership is twofold. It must crush militants along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border and bring a sense of security and peace to the region. At the same time, the Pakistani military must contain the regrouping and development of various Islamic militant factions in Pakistan itself.
